Below you will find the instructions you'll need to fill out the Entrant Application.


We recommend that you print out this page and use it for reference as you fill in your application form. 



In order to keep our administrative costs as low as possible you will not be required to pay for your entry at this time

You will you be asked to pay your $175 entry fee ONLY when you have been notified that your entry has been accepted by the Concours Selection Committee. 

Step 1 : Contact Information

VERY IMPORTANT - Regardless of who owns the vehicle, we need to have a single contact with whom we can communicate about the event. Enter this person’s name and email in this part of the form. (You will enter the owner’s name for the program and placard in another step.) We also must have a mobile/cell phone number so we can reach you or whomever will be with the vehicle on the day of the event. If you are the main contact but someone else (your spouse or business partner) will be with the vehicle at the show, you should enter their number in the “cell phone” box.

Step 2 : Vehicle Information

Vehicle Owner – Enter the name exactly as you want to appear in the program, our records and the vehicle placard. 


Year, Make, Model and Color – Only vehicles built in model years up to 1994 are eligible for the Concours, except for specific special exhibit classes or where model years are specified in the class description. In the unlikely event your car’s make/marque is not in the drop-down list, select OTHER and enter the model and make in the “Model” box. You may enter a generic color or the manufacturer’s nomenclature (e.g., “Guardsman Red,” or “Mint Green”).


Coach Builder – Provide this information ONLY if it is applicable to your vehicle; that is, automobiles where it was customary to have a bespoke body created or where known artisans were routinely called on to replace or extensively modify existing manufactured body styles.


License Plate – Provide the state and license plate number of the car or motorcycle as it will appear at the Concours d’Élegance. Enter "None" if your vehicle has no plates or “Non-US” for other countries.


Other identifying data – If available provide either the VIN# (Vehicle Identification Number) or, if the vehicle was manufactured before VINs were required, the chassis number.

Step 3 : Class & Judging

You may choose to have your car entered for exhibit only or have it judged and therefore eligible for an award. All cars entered in the preservation class (PV) will be judged. NOTE - In selecting cars for concours participation, priority will be given to judged entries.

Whether or not you wish to have your car judged, please indicate in which class you would like your car to be exhibited. NOTE - final class assignments will be determined by the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance and may be changed without notice.

Vehicle Description - The Hillsborough Concours creates a custom placard for each vehicle entered, which is displayed by your vehicle at the show (and will be yours to keep). We want to incorporate information about this specific vehicle in the placard, so let us know anything significant about this year/make/model and what’s special about your vehicle. This may be just how long you’ve owned it and whether and when it’s been restored. Or it may be its provenance or awards won at a significant Concours d’Elegance or other show.


Step 4 : Photographs - VERY IMPORTANT ! 


You are required to provide four (4) recent photographs of your car showing its front, side, interior and engine compartment. All four are required. 


Note: The system only accepts image files in .jpg, .jpeg, .png and .gif formats (this is the type created by almost all electronic cameras and scanners so you are probably OK).
